Saying “the Electoral College has spoken,” McConnell, speaking on the Senate floor, said, “this morning, our country has officially a president-elect and a vice president-elect.”
“I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden,” McConnell said.
“Many of us hoped that the presidential election would yield a different result, but our system of government has a process to determine who will be sworn in on January 20,” he said.
“The president-elect is no stranger to the Senate. He’s devoted himself to public service for many years,” McConnell continued, before turning to Kamala Harris’ historic win.
“I also want to congratulate the vice president-elect, our colleague from California, Senator Harris. Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president-elect for the first time,” he said. ABC NEWS
